I’m sorry, but I just can’t help it: when the “I told you so” is this clear, it has to be said. Here is a story about a time when Steven Colbert mocked Beck for urging people to spend a little time and money to put aside supplies in case of an emergency. I couldn’t get the link of just the Colbert clip, so just click on the story and watch just the Colbert piece. Pay attention to how Beck specifically mentions natural disaster, and ask yourself who the victims of Sandy wish they had listened to now: Beck, or the mocking Colbert:
How many times does a person have to give you good advice before you will listen? How often does his advice have to be proven correct before you will count it good? And how often do the people you chose to listen to have to be proven wrong before you will question them? And how badly do they have to be proven wrong — when people die needlessly? What if it’s you next time?
